robably something I have to deal with

Coach Ken Hinkley made Port Adelaide players train under a blunt message on day one of AFL pre-season. .What Did You Learn was written on the Alberton Oval scoreboard.The biggest thing we learnt is that the standard of last year wasnt good enough, Port captain Travis Boak told reporters on Monday.And we need to come back and want to improve ... they are the words Kenny said and they are the words that will be ringing in the guys ears.After missing the past two finals, Boak said Monday - the first time Ports full group trained together - was an important step.You get a little bit edgy, you certainly wan to get back into it - with the season we had, were ready to start again, Boak said.Things will change. It will be a fresh start for this group, a fresh start for the club and that is the way we want to look at it.I dont want to get too into detail.But just the whole vibe around the club, the enjoyment at training, there is a little bit of game plan stuff which we tinker with every pre-season.And a huge focus on our skills ... there is a few things there that we will continue to work on.Boak said Port planned to use Paddy Ryder and Angus Monfries as inspiration during the preseason after the former Essendon players served a year ban.Not only out on the track and when they play, but around the club, Boak said.For those guys to miss a year of footy, it will be good for them to speak to the group about having something so important to you taken away. . Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots. Tim Robin Johnsgard had the lone goal for Norway (0-2). .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice says he would donate his entire 2016 salary to charity if signed by an NFL team this season.?Rice, out of football since 2014 after being suspended?at the start of that season for domestic violence, told USA Today that any money he earned would go toward programs combating that issue.?All the scrutiny that Ive got, it was deserved, because domestic violence is a horrible thing, Rice said in a story posted on the USA Today website.?Me donating my salary is something thatll be from the heart for me. I only want to play football so I can end it the right way for my kids and for the people that really believed in me. But I know theres a lot of people affected by domestic violence, and every dollar helps. Its raising awareness.People need homes. People need shelter when theyre in a crucial situation. Ive donated a lot of money to charities, but I had a situation where it was a national crisis. Im not saying Id be (donating the salary) to get on the field, but its something that will show where my heart is. My heart is about finishing the right way and helping people along the way.The 29-year-old Rice played six seasons for Baltimore. He ran for 6,180 yards and 37 TDs.But the three-time Pro Bowler was suspended indefinitely by the NNFL in September 2014 and was released by the Ravens when a video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancee in an elevator. His suspension was later overturned by a neutral arbitrator.According to USA Today, the minimum salary for a seventh-year player such as Rice would be $885,000.?Earlier this month, Rice told that the window for his return to the NFL is closing but that he wouldnt be discouraged if he never played again.?I dont want to ever say Im giving up, because thats never going to be me, Rice told the website. Im happy. Im in the best shape of my life, and I know if it doesnt happen this year, its probably something I have to deal with. But you know what? Its not the end of my life.I know that the window for playing is closing. But if my window closes, Im going to make sure I open up a thousand more opportunities for kids, to give them an opportunity to pick up where I left off. Thats where Im at. Ive got three Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl. Theres a lot of people that cant go out there and do what I did. But I dont want it to end that way, its safe to say.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Authentic Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
